Sigmatex has completed the installation of Liba MAX 5 multi-axial technology at its US facility in Benicia, CA, USA.

Manufactured by LIBA Maschinenfabrik GmbH of Germany, the MAX 5 offers state of the art capability allowing for the production of light weight multi-axial (NCF) stitched carbon fibre fabrics from large tow count fibres in addition to industry standard materials. It is also capable of processing demanding intermediate and high modulus fibres.
